Modular construction isnt new, but robots are making it more efficient than ever while addressing a labor shortage. Bringing robotics into the equation allows more parts of the building process to happen in customized facilities.
From Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering at ETH Zurich:
The Aerial Construction project is a collaboration between the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control and the Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication. The objective is to investigate and develop methods and techniques for robotic aerial construction... ( project homepage )
TX2 robots: redefining performance by offering collaborative safety and high performance in a single machine. These pioneering robots can be used in all areas, including sensitive and restrictive environments, thanks to their unique features. Safety functions are easy and inexpensive to implement. They allow a higher level of interactions between robots and human operators, while still guaranteeing protection of your people, production and investment.
